Total’s Egina discipline, situated 93 mi (150 km) off Port Harcourt, kicked into manufacturing simply as 2018 was winding to an in depth. The start-up of any offshore discipline is notable, however Egina’s is particularly so: The discipline is estimated to include reserves of 550 MMbbl. Lying in water depths starting from four,593 to five,740 ft (1,400 to 1,750 m), Egina is without doubt one of the deepest offshore initiatives Total operates. The large discipline additionally requires the corporate’s largest floating manufacturing, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) up to now, the 1,083 ft-long (330 m) FPSO Egina, which has a 60,000-ton topsides and a storage capability of two.three MMbbl of oil.
TechnipFMC is liable for the 44-well discipline’s full subsea manufacturing system (SPS) and versatile piping. Total awarded us a contract value greater than a billion in June 2013 that coated subsea timber and wellheads, manifolds, set up tooling, flowline connection techniques, multiphase meters, and related management techniques. At the time of the order, it was the most important subsea venture up to now in West Africa.
In July 2013, we obtained two contracts to provide versatile piping. The awards coated the qualification and provide of 12 dynamic versatile jumpers starting from three.5-in. to 12.5-in. for oil manufacturing, fuel carry, water injection and fuel export to attach the only prime rigidity risers to the FPSO. Also included had been two 20.5-in. unbonded versatile pipes as oil offloading traces connecting the FPSO to the offloading buoy and related tools. At the time, these had been the most important versatile pipes the corporate had manufactured up to now. In the identical month, we had been awarded a contract to provide the metal tube umbilicals.
Egina’s start-up can also be of explicit significance to the native oil and fuel sector. Total expects the sector to peak at 200,000 bopd, which it says is equal to 10% of Nigeria’s complete manufacturing.
The discipline resulted in a rush of native coaching and jobs, infrastructure upgrades, and additional improvement in Nigeria. In June 2016, we celebrated a brand new subsea providers workshop in Onne, Port Harcourt. This assist middle functioned because the service base, however fabrication additionally occurred in Norway and Scotland. Engineering and development for the subsea manufacturing system had been accomplished in Nigeria.
The first two of the eventual 44 subsea timber had been delivered in April 2016. Two months later, we marked the primary two of Egina’s subsea timber to be totally accomplished in Nigeria.
In October 2017, our six manifold modules had been put in at Egina. All had been manufactured on the Aveon yard in Port Harcourt, with first metal lower in late 2013.

Discovered in 2003, the Egina discipline is situated on Block OML 130, inside kilometers of the Akpo discipline, producing since 2009, and the Preowei discovery, for which a last funding determination is anticipated later in 2019.
